secretary clinton to be their candidate. 16% want the great joes biden, and andrew cuomo and elizabeth warren. if hillary clinton did win the nomination her biggest challenge would be chris christie. she still leads him but surprisingly only by 4 points so maybe newt gingrich of all people said it best. >> if their competitor in 16 is going to be hillary clinton, supported by bill clinton and presumably still popular barack obama truly winning that will be like winning the super bowl. >> jennifer: >> jennifer: joining me now is kiki mcclean, senior advisor to secretary clinton's 2008 campaign and press secretary for vice president al gore's 2000 campaign. and a whole bunch of other stuff. kiki comes to us from washington. thanks kiki for joining me inside "the war room" again. >> always glad to be here governor. >> jennifer: i love to talk about our favorite subject which is president clinton two. today there were a number of senators and congressmen who alluded to her presidential run potentially. if she does decide to run for president, today's stuff about beng
